. the political winds have shifted and obama now decides it's safe to come fought for gay marriage now arguing the journey to realize the promise of the declaration of independence must end in same-sex marriage. now, look. people are entitled to change their position on issues but what obama never answered is why he believes his religion allows for something he said his faith opposed and now, he believes marriage is a civil right. in the past he flatly declared waits not. did anyone in the main stream media point that out? not a single person. these last four years and events have provided countless examples of the media shirking their response skbriblt not doing their due diligence whit comes to veting obama. maybe it's fatigue from veting. bush administration for eight years. in case you've forgoten how different the coverage was for president bush, here is a trip down memory lane. let's take a look at president bush in 2005 what. a difference. >> world news tonight, sunday, president bush prepares for his second inauguration. >> in a time of war, is it time for a lavish celebration sfl. >>

. the real president obama looked serious but he isn't. he ignores what he was right to be upset about just 7 years ago. congressional record shows that senator obama said this about the bush administration. it took 42 presidents 224 years to run up only one trillion of foreign held debt. this administration did more than that in just five years. he was right the bush administration did that. but now obama's administration has done much worse. they have run up another 6 trillion in debt. how is that possible when just a few years ago barack obama believed this. >> america has a debt problem. therefore tends to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. >> this year president obama demands congress raise the debt limit without condition. i want the old barack obama back. he made sense. a new guy, he scares the heck out of me. i fear he's going to bankrupt my country. that's our show, i am john stossel. we will be back next week.

obama campaigned on hope and change. but washington and the nation is more polarized. take a look at the numbers. a new fox news poll shows 84% of democrats approve of president obama's job performance, but just 11% of republicans say he's doing a good job. that's a 73-point gap, tied with one other president, george w. bush. another poll shows since president obama was re-elected, just a third of voters think he has been more bipartisan. but the majority, 55% say he's been more confrontational. does this mean nothing can really get done that's meaningful in washington to solve our nation's national debt and help the economy? we have a former white house political director under president george w. bush and a former chief of staff to west virginia senator joe mansion. >> great to be here. >> eric: matt, let me start with you. how do we get here? >> well, you know, i think about the president i served, george w. bush. when he came to office, he really was concerned about trying to if i understand a way to reach across the aisle because clearly bill clinton left the presidency with
to the quadrennial pomp and color of a presidential inauguration. it marked the public start to the second obama administration, and it featured presidential appeals to extend prosperity and full freedoms to all americans. as the sun rose over the nation's capital on this monday hundreds of thousands of people began descending on the national mall to witness the occasion. officials estimated 500-700,000 attendees. that was far fewer than four years ago when nearly two million turned out. but today's crowd gave no hint of diminished enthusiasm for the 44th president after a first term that saw bruising battles over health care, financial reform, deficits and spending and more. the man they came to see began his day with a morning prayer service at st. john's episcopal, near the white house and often called the church of the presidents. he was joined by first lady michelle obama and their daughters malia and sasha as well as vice president biden, his wife jill and members of their family. afterward at the white house, they hosted a bipartisan group of congressional leaders for coffee and then the
four years the left wing media come to the defense of president obama no matter what the issue is. yesterday, covering the inauguration, the so-called media couldn't contain their giddiness or excitement. and here are examples of their reporting. >> shaun turned 16 and dad, i want to spend my 16th trip to see the inauguration, any regrets so far. >> not at all, not at all. a little bit of sleep. >> that's enough. >> that's enough. >> history is keeping you warm, right? >> exactly, outstanding. >> we're going to go now to bill weir who is out in the center of the mall and i heard you say earlier, bill, people are counting on history to keep them warm. >> absolutely. and the community, a sense of national pride on days like this. >> this is the moment that everybody is waiting for on inauguration day with the president and first lady step out of their limo and walk down pennsylvania avenue. you know, i feel like i should pinch myself right now, wolf. i can't believe i have this vantage point of history in the making. >> so your he' literally what, 15, 20 feet away from the president

[cheers and applause] they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> jon: that's interesting. the president is using a rhetorical device in this speech that is -- what is it we're talking about help me out vanquished vice presidential candidate paul ryan, what is he doing? >> that rhetorical device he uses over and over and over a straw man. >> jon: actually you know what a straw man is when you create or falsely characterize a opponent's argument to dismantel the argument. i think the president is throwing your own words back in your face without naming you. passive al gretion. that's what he is using. passive aggression. this argument as a straw man. i could have sworn i heard a politician make that exact sta
a great, day, everyone! >> thanks again! have a great day! >>> four more years! president obama kicks off his second term with a rallying cry for where he wants the country to go. some say calling it progressive is an understatement. but can the president get bills on climate change and immigration through the republican-controlled house? meanwhile, in the middle east, israelis go to the polls and prime minister benjamin netanyahu is expected to keep his job. but what course does he want to take and what does that mean for the u.s. relationship with israel? >>> and today marks the 40th anniversary of the supreme court's landmark ruling on abortion in the case of roe versus wade. this morning, new poll numbers show what a majority of the country thinks about this always controversial topic. good morning from washington. it's tuesday, january 22nd, 2013, and this is "the daily rundown." i'm chris cillizza in for the "he lost his voice" chuck todd. let's get right to the first reads of the morning. five years ago, candidate barack obama laid out his vision of the presidency, talking about le

: there are few people we think we know more about than president barack obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton, and everyone has an opinion-- about their politics, their marriages, and a rivalry that is one of the richest in american history. on friday we had the opportunity to sit down with the two of them side by side. the white house offered us 30 minutes, barely enough time to scratch the surface of their complicated personal and professional relationship, let alone discuss their policies on iran and israel, russia and china, egypt and libya. there has been much speculation about their evolution from bitter opponents to partners in the corridors of power and the motivation for doing this interview. now you can be the judge. this is very improbable. this is not an interview i ever expected to be doing. but i understand, mr. president, this was your idea. why did you want to do this together, a joint interview? >> obama: well, the main thing is, i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you, because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of sta
